Rockford, IL — Since the products first introduction in 2008, Integral V™ Technology (IVT) has proceeded to gain momentum as a cost-saving solution to precision aligned linear motion. With over 20 different configurations already available and more under development, PBC Linear’s Integral V linear guide system has been successfully implemented into a wide variety of applications. Now, with the newly developed SIMO process (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation), IVT is poised to deliver more accurate linear motion, with less mounting components.
IVT creates a solution to the common problem of mounting a precision aligned system. Traditional linear guides not only require an entire menagerie of different mounting components, but they also have to undergo a scrupulous aligning process. Using the SIMO process, four synchronized drills concurrently mill an aluminum extrusion on all sides. Creating a consistent, precision-machined extrusion with tighter tolerances (±0.001” from lot to lot) at no added cost–making IVT a very efficient linear guide system in several industries.
Recently, Integral V Technology has been implemented in several manufacturing CNC milling machines. Using a customized integrated design, PBC Linear was able to use IVT to create a more cost effective, precise, aluminum extrusion without the added cost! As a result, IVT has been implemented into the design of the company’s new CNC milling system. Another example of how IVT applied was in extreme heat seaming machines. Installed in a newly designed seamer of thermoplastic material, Integral V saved the customer over 60% on installation time and costs! IVT has also been precision machined into PBC Linear’s complete line of Linear Actuator Technology (LAT) to ensure reliable accuracy all along the rail.
